Engagement and Leadership Development

Register to Attend the Retreat
The day includes:
  • A keynote and reflections on the threats (the NO) facing us today, as well as the opportunities and resources (the YES!) we have as we grapple with how to respond effectively as people grounded in Eco-Faith-Recovery, to run-away consumerism and the threat of climate change
  • Spiritual grounding, outdoors among the trees
  • A chance to meet other leaders, and learn more about the many faces of EcoFaith Recovery, including Organizing in the BioCommons, Beyond Fossil Fuels, Simply in Season, Care for Creation, Internships, and Mentoring.
  • A workshop on practices and tools for engaging our congregations and other communities and institutions and developing leadership
  • An invitation to step into deeper leadership within EcoFaith Recovery, and in your own congregations and other communities and institutions
